The Odd Fellows and Masons Hall
The Odd Fellows and Masons Hall was the town’s first two-story building and is one of the
oldest extant building in San Andreas. The brick structure was built in 1856; it managed to
survive the fire of 1858 by closing its iron shutters and letting the fire burn by. The meeting
hall was located upstairs while a general provision store operated from the main floor. The
basement housed a billiard parlor and saloon. The building was originally constructed by the San
Andreas Lodge, F.& A. M., who later shared it with the Calaveras Lodge, I.O.O.F., which was
organized in 1865. The main floor was used as an armory during the Civil War by the Union Guards.
The building was purchased by the County of Calaveras in 1900. It is located at 22 N. Main.
